Land Use Attorney Bob Harris Named Best Lawyers 2014 "Lawyer of the Year"

Best Lawyers

Land use attorney Bob Harris has been named Washington, DC's Land Use & Zoning Law "Lawyer of the Year" by The Best Lawyers in America 2014. Since it was first published in 1983, Best Lawyers has become regarded as one of the definitive guides to legal excellence.

Bob Harris co-chairs Lerch, Early & Brewer's Land Use group in Bethesda, Maryland. He helps landowners strategically improve the use and value of their real estate. His practice includes zoning, land use, real estate and municipal affairs. He represents commercial and residential landowners before planning commissions, courts, governmental agencies and elected officials in connection with obtaining development approvals and in the protection of land use rights in Montgomery County, Maryland. He is devoted to being well-informed on trends, policies and practices that influence development, and his clients describe him as being extremely knowledgeable

Bob joins three other Lerch, Early & Brewer attorneys who have received this honor from Best Lawyers: Robby Brewer, Harry Lerch, and Stan Reed, each for his respective area of practice.

Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 36,000 leading attorneys cast almost 4.4 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.” For more information, visit
